Disaster Communication Dog

Messenger Dog is a communication system that allows people caught up in disasters, such as earthquakes. to communicate with their loved ones to tell them they are OK.  Messenger dogs wearing special high tech vests are equipped to record geo-tagged audio/video messages. The recording device is triggered by the dog sitting down; the dogs are trained to sit in front of any person they meet and a message encourages the person to send a message. Volunteers then download the videos for concerned relatives to watch.  See how it works in the video:
